3 Shades Black, La Mama, and the Midsumma Festival are proud to present Homophonic!, an evening of new classical music by queer composers. Celebrating sapphic symphonists, homosexual harmonies, and the long and proud tradition of composers being as gay as the day is long.

Classical music has a rich heritage of LGBT musicians and composers, and this concert is celebrating the legacy of artists such as Tchaikovsky, Poulenc, Copland and Cage, by performing the work of 20th and 21st century queer composers, in an exciting program that is sure to entertain and enlighten even the most experienced concert goer.

We’re bringing the disco ball to the concert hall! Come along to hear some of Melbourne’s most in demand classical musicians play some outlandishly fabulous music, and experience the sound world of the LGBT composers of today.

Featuring music by: David Chisholm*, Naima Fine*+, Wally Gunn*+, Joelle Leandre, Luke Paulding*, Ethel Smyth, Sally Whitwell* and Charles Wuorinen.
